MFW - Don't Throw It Away

There is a new magazine out that is a "must have" for me. Practical Solutions for Paper Crafters. Moxie Fab World has a challenge-a-day going on this week, featuring different sections of this magazine...I am hoping to get cards posted for each one (not in any particular order).
This one "Don't Throw It Away" has my name all over it:

Anyone who knows me, has a good idea, I keep everything, thinking I could "use it on a card" someday.

Sooo, I go to the mailbox the other day and find this piece of 'junk' mail and think, "Well the envelope is a pretty color to frame a stamped image, the paper inside is also something I would keep in the
drawer-of-useable-stuff' in my craft room". BTW, the drawer is totally overflowing, actually using these couple of pieces of paper was great :o)

My Card ~
Cardstock: Base card is textured 5"X7" by Royal Langnickel; panel with stamped image is SS by PTI
Stamp: Bunny Border by All Night Media; sentiment from my computer
Coloring: Crayola Colored Pencils
Tools & Embellishments: Nestabilities; Corner Rounder by EKSuccess; Lime Green Stickles Green & Orance Hemp;
Other: patterned paper, green panel under stamped white panel is my junk mail

Thanks so much for stopping by~you sure are appreciated!
